Here is some more on the Mlpa closure and the where abouts 

"This spring, new marine protected areas (MPAs) will go into effect along California's coastline from Alder Creek, near Point Arena in Mendocino County, to Pigeon Point in San Mateo County.

A new, printer-friendly brochure titled "Marine Protected Area Information for Recreational Fishermen" is now available online at www.dfg.ca.gov/mlpa/pdfs/nccmpas_brochure_highres.pdf . You may also view a web-friendly version (smaller file size) online at www.dfg.ca.gov/mlpa/pdfs/nccmpas_brochure_lowres.pdf .

For more information, visit the Marine Life Protection Act Web site at www.dfg.ca.gov/mlpa.

Yep, be sure to check the new DFG regs booklet for more info on the upcoming closed areas.
Some spots like Sea Lion Cove up near Pt. Arena are finfish only now, no abs (even though there's more abalone there than you could ever hope to pull).
Saunders Reef (about 6 mi. south of that) is now NO TAKE what so ever.
Stewart's Point is another big mess of a NO TAKE zone.
Just know where you're diving this year boys & girls.  It's going to be interesting......

Luckily I dive with buddies who know if the areas are GOOD TO GO or not. If I don't know if an area is PHUCKED or not, I'm not diving it.

Here is the latest Google earth file with all the updated MLPA's on it.
From Tino
Hey Guys,
I just finished this new Google Earth file.
If you use Google Earth, then you gotta try this file out.
It shows all the current MPA areas in California and has links to what’s open and not.
Take a look and let me know what you think.

Thanks for the update Matt.
It added a lot of blue and red boundary lines inside of where the existing ones from last year were.
Should I remove the old boundary lines from 2010?

Anyone know of a good current google earth file with all the state wide mpa's?

I have downloaded the two from the downloads page, and while the first one is real good, it only has the north central and its outdated.  The newer one isn't so friendly. 

I found a real good one last year, but didn't back it up, and now its gone.  It had links set up, so when you click on a reserve, it would open a webpage showing the info on that one.  I can't seem to find it anymore.

Seems to me like the dfg should have these on there website...

Anyone know of a good one?

Thanks Matt, that mobile maps page is pretty good, been using that lately, 
but since I use google earth to scout dive spots it's pretty clutch to have it on there, as a layer I can turn off and on.
If anyone knows of a good one let me know.  Thanks!
